Thanks for your comments and reply. Are you an Astronomer? If you are I am
glad we have a member that is. I have not read the Siva Purana but I accept
that you have read it correctly. Let me ask this, The ancient Hindu has Solar
Observatory they must have used analytical means of measuring the size of the
sphere of the Sun and obtaining the angle from more than one location to get
the geometry to obtain the distance correctly. How do you as an Astronomer if
you perceive why the measurement by the unit of Yojana is so markedly faulted?
Are there more than one standard for what distance is I unit of Yojana? Or is
the Purana which were much more recent a literature possibly incorrect? The
difference between the 864,000 miles I posted and the value you cite for the
International committee accepted value of 869,375 miles using 21st century
technology to obtain it is only "0.0062r %" of difference a very small difference. I
used the 864,000 value because that is what I have always found cited in
mostly nonprofessional resources like Asimov or other similar gradient publishments.
Be that as it may, this is the first time I have seen you post here, are
you new or have you been here for a while? Looks like your an interesting
person that might brighten up the discussions here.
